    I just looked it up on a map, honestly it might be easier to get to Alaska.

    There's a reason Maine hasn't been there since 1988...

    So split the travel and play that series in Utica.

    Honestly 2 games against UAA wouldn't change Maine's PWR much from 2 idle dates. For Michigan Tech it is a matter of losing six games (four home games) but there is a chance the WCHA will have to redo the entire conference schedule. If the WCHA does that there will be other teams in that conference looking for NC games. MTU, NMU, LSSU and the Minnesota teams aren't ideal for travel, but Bowling Green and Huntsville are good options and even Ferris State could work.

    We'll have to wait at least two weeks to learn what is happening at UAA and more for the WCHA to decide (although one hopes they already have a contingency plan ready to go)

    What are the odds that Maine's PWR matters in any regard next year?

    It will probably matter to Providence, UMass and the Boston schools.

    Its not Maine's fault that the Alaskan schools are in trouble...so it is what it is, no crying in hockey is there?

    If you assume that three teams from Hockey East make the NCAA tournament and UMA is the only one nailed on to take a spot than Maine should be in the mix. Obviously Redís track record isnít great, but talent wise there is no reason they shouldnít be in contention.

    The biggest question mark for me is their center depth, especially after losing Pearson. I think they look solid on the wings, a 1-2-3 of Fossier-Schmitty-Smith on the left and Tralmaks-Dawe-Shea on the right is pretty solid if you ask me. Im interested if they will try to put a freshman like Breen between Fossier and Tralmaks and try and develop some chemistry, or will they just bump Dohrety to the first line. The D is also interesting, only 2 of the top 6 from last year return, but they were both pretty solid. Greenway should be a big add, and if VMT returns from injury, it will be more about how they gel and how the freshman do at the bottom of the lineup. Same story mostly if you ask me, they have the ability to be pretty darn good but its a matter of if they will be
    They might be slightly worse, though, losing Keeper and especially Pearson early hurts.

    slim to none. Has it mattered since Red became coach?

    Breen was in Fargoís camp. So looks like he isnít coming in this fall after all. He, like Roy, signed an LOI. So this is odd.

    Gould and Poissant were also in Fargoís camp.

    Yeah, there's that, but even scheduling a UAA series is dicey. Assuming that UAA is going to be as bad as they were last year, failing to sweep them will result in an RPI hit that probably won't be recouped in any fashion next season.

    You have a point, to say the least.

    Red's teams have almost exactly mediocre year-in and year-out.

    And next season looks to be somewhat worse.

    (Still going to Upper Bumf..., I mean Canton NY to see them at St. Lawrence. That's a great old barn.)
